Drama, Period and Historical
Based on the novel by EM Forster, this poignant and understated drama examines the British class system, and how it affects three families in the early 1900s. Howards End is the name of a country house that belongs to wealthy Mrs Wilcox. She becomes close friends with middle class Margaret, and decides to leave the house to her. After her death, the money-minded Wilcox family ignore her request, and Margaret never discovers her friend's true wishes. But fate intervenes, and Margaret agrees to become the second Mrs Wilcox. However, when Margaret's younger sister introduces a poor clerk and his wife into the newly-engaged couple's life, some long-hidden secrets are revealed.
Is it OK to have a central character who never seizes control of his own life? That is the challenge that The Remains of the Day sets itself.
